My wife Sara and I were married in 2005 and have two wonderful children, Mikayla (11) and Jonny (8). Together we have served side by side in ministry for all these years, and we look forward to many more in God’s service. I am an Ordained minister with the Assemblies of God, an author of the book STOKED, and hold 4 degrees including my MA in Christian Leadership (University of Valley Forge) as well as my BA in Preaching and Evangelism (Central Bible College). In the Spring Semester of 2019, In 2018, I officially began my journey towards earning my Ph.D in Leadership from Liberty University. 

    Sara is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God with her B.A. from Central Bible College in Intercultural Studies. Both of us come from a strong heritage of ministry backgrounds. My wife is a fourth generation minister, and my father is also a full-time pastor. Our passion is to reach those who are far from God  through creative outreach and missions efforts, and then to journey with those who have been saved in a clear path of discipleship. Over the last many years I have traveled to 6 nations on mission trips, and look forward to traveling more! Most of all I love my family and doing life with them as we serve and love God together.
